我们几个朋友已经多次正式或非正式参加马拉松活动,积累了一些经验。一些朋友正在考虑成立一个马拉松小组,明年一起正式参加波士顿马拉松比赛,为一个基金会募捐。不知道大家有没有认识的朋友在基金会工作,最好是教育方面的。若有的话,可否代为联系一下?

目前我们自己正在联络滋根基金会(The Zigen Fund)。

Maybe you can start a new education related 基金会 yourself. It is not that hard. I am interested in that too.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you want me to introduce you one, I recommend Primary Source.

They focus on introdcuing Chinese culture to Americans.

I think that they provide educational and financial support to schools in improverished areas of China, too.

I know one of the founders very well. I was invited to their fund raising activities before.

check their China program here

http://www.primarysource.org/board-of-directors

Anne Watt, EdD, a co-founder of Primary Source, joined the board in 2006, following 17 years of distinguished service to cultivating the organization she and Anna Roelofs established formally in 1989. With a deep belief in the importance of adult development in transforming education, Anne has spent many years providing educators with rich learning experiences about important cultures of the world, often overlooked by traditional curriculum. Her deep passion, determination, and organizational skills have been instrumental to Primary Source's development to help teachers learn about new intellectual content and ideas for materials and pedagogy. Prior to her work with Primary Source, Anne worked in race relations, teaching, and school administration. She received her undergraduate degree from Radcliffe College, a master's degree from Bank Street College of Education, and a doctorate from the University of Massachusetts.

ATTENTION INTERESTED CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS:
Applications for the 2011 B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program will be available online on June 1, 2010.


ATTENTION INTERESTED RUNNERS:
Charities will begin accepting applications for the 2011 Boston Marathon in September 2010. Please contact the charities directly for application information.
Mission Statement
The Boston Athletic Association, committed to encouraging and promoting fitness through athletics, has developed a program with the Boston Marathon and charitable organizations in the Boston area. The B.A.A. assists these charitable organizations by providing guaranteed entries for their organization’s fund raising purposes and, in the spirit of charity, encourages all qualified runners to aid in these efforts.

About the Program
The B.A.A. accepts a limited number of new organizations each year, each to receive 15 waivers per year for a period for up to three years. These entries do not require a qualifying time but do require that runners acknowledge that they can complete a marathon within 6 hours and will abide by all other B.A.A. rules and regulations.

The objective of the B.A.A. is to diversify the type of charities that are accepted in the program. For your information, a list of charities currently in place for the 2010 Boston Marathon is listed on the left. Please click on the logos for more information on each charity. It is solely at the discretion of the B.A.A. as to the selection criteria and ultimate number of charities chosen or entries given.

How to Apply
Organizations that are located in the Greater Boston area are welcome to apply to the Official Charity Program. Applications are traditionally available online during the month of June. In addition to completing the online application, organizations are required to provide the following financial documents:

501 (c) 3 letter
IRS Form 990
Recent Audit Report

Please check this page for the most up to date 2010 Boston Marathon Charity Program application information.
Please contact Elisabeth Worthing at Worthing@baa.org or 617-236-1652, x2630 with questions.

Himalaya, thanks so much.

I hope I could start a new fund by myself, but I am afraid I would have no time to handle it now. Well, if you do that, I would like to support you as I can.

2011 Boston Marathon Official charities will be available online in June, 2010. In addition to completing the online application, organizations are required to provide the following financial documents:

501 (c) 3 letter
IRS Form 990
Recent Audit Report

In my understanding, The application should be submitted soon. It was quite hurry. I will appreciate you very much if you can help us to contact Primary Source and ask them if it is possible.

Will talk to you late for more details if need.

Bysea, 我向您推荐“手牵手教育基金会”(Hand By Hand Education Foundation)www.hbhef.org。我想这是符合您要求的一个教育基金会。

手牵手教育基金会是于2006年底成立的专门帮助中国贫困中小学生顺利完成学业的非营利的公共慈善机构。基金会已由美国政府(IRS)认准为501c(3)组织,您给基金会的所有捐款在美国是免税的。基金会的所有工作人员都是义务奉献,不计报酬, 100%捐款用于赞助贫困学生。到目前为止, 基金会已经赞助河北省平山, 赞皇, 灵寿, 元氏, 贵州省长顺, 平塘等六个国家级贫困县及浙江省兰溪市, 四川省广元地震灾区1300多人次的贫困学生。

我在2007年10月从我同事那里得知“手牵手教育基金会”,至今通过该基金会我已捐助贫困学生22人次,其透明度是我所捐助的同类别教育基金会中最高的,因为我可以自己选定我想捐助的学生,该学生也会直接跟我通信,我明确知道我的捐款是专款专用并落实到位的。“手牵手教育基金会”一收到我的捐款,马上会在www.hbhef.org上更新我资助学生的捐款记录,以确认捐款已收到。我已连续3年在2008,2009和2010年初,收到该基金会寄来的我前一年准确金额的捐款收据以作我的抵税凭证。

“手牵手教育基金会”在2009年12月赢得由美国Chase银行赞助的慈善大赛前100名,这是对“手牵手教育基金会”这些年来积极高效透明地赞助中国贫困中小学生顺利完成学业的肯定。

以下是“手牵手教育基金会”的联络方式。

好生佩服,从2007年起,你赞助过这么多中国贫困中小学生(22人次)!崇拜 感动

这个基金会看上去很好。遗憾的是,它不是波士顿地区的单位,无法申请。首帖中,我忘记说了,对不起。

再次感谢!

佩服 崇拜 感动 support

可否申请个波士顿联络处(比如:手牵手教育基金会波士顿分会)?
这样能算是波士顿地区的单位吗?

我在初中的时候,看了中央电视台的一个纪录片,讲的是一名山村教师和一群山村的孩子如何翻山越岭长途跋涉,没有象样的教室,课本和文具,没有象样的鞋子和足够的食物,在异常艰苦的条件下,他们仍然坚持教课和坚持上学。我是边哭边看完这个纪录片的。在那时,我就许下一个心愿:等我有经济能力的时候,我要帮助这些山村的孩子,贫困地区的孩子上学。其实,“手牵手教育基金会”正是以一个非常透明的方式在帮我达成我从初中时代就许下的这个心愿。

我在来波士顿以前,也曾与一些志同道合的朋友一起为中国贫困地区的孩子就学捐款出力。但常常因多种原因,无法象“手牵手教育基金会”这样做到”一对一“如此透明,也很难做到很好的持续追踪。所以,当同事把 “手牵手教育基金会” 介绍给我的时候,我马上意识到这正是我一直寻找的实事实办的捐助贫困学生就学的好渠道。

其实,与“手牵手教育基金会”那些完全不计时间和报酬,无私奉献的义工们相比,我所做的真是太轻松了,太微不足道了。

我不知道他们能否申请个“手牵手教育基金会波士顿联络处”这样的机构。也不知道这样可否作为波士顿地区单位来申请”2011 B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program”。Bysea, 您愿意和“手牵手教育基金会”的负责人联络一下吗?

Hi guys,

I just realize that my best friend is the Treasurer assistant of Zigen Fund (public charity organization) - 2008 to current (Boston Chapter).

That means Zigen does have Boston Chapter.

It is a small world. So many people are involved in the good charity work. 崇拜

当然愿意。只是如此一来,又会给他们添很多事情。我想最好还是和 Boston Marathon Charity Program先联系一下,看有无可能性再说。

我与把“手牵手教育基金会”介绍给我的同事通了电话,他现在已换至另一家公司工作。他告诉我说“手牵手教育基金会”有Boston Chapter。他们会与在密歇根州的Main Chapter联系有关申请加入” 2011 B.A.A. Boston Marathon Charity Program” 的事宜。等他们申请成功后,我再通知各位。 happy
